Amorphous Bandcamp is now online.
Digital only for the moment, but physical stock will be added in the next few days.

Notable features and omissions:
The Isness is the Abbey Road Version, which Gaz has gone on record to state is his favourite of the two. This does mean there's no presence of The Lovers or The Isness on the Bandcamp, as well as the 'final' mixes of Elysian Feels, Mello Hippo, Guru Song, Galaxial, Egghead and Divinity - and, as it's the 2018 Abbey Road cut, the original versions of Her Tongue and Meadows. It also means The Otherness repeats two tracks from the original album.
Divinity is now an official commercial release, having only been a promo before.
Alice in Ultraland is back under the band's control (one would assume a 15 year contract with EMI for that).
The Peppermint Tree doesn't include bonus track An Absurd Consequence of Living in Absurd Times (or it's a hidden bonus track maybe?).
The Cartel Remixes is the digital edition rather than vinyl edition, meaning those vinyl-only remixes are still vinyl-only.
Promo-only edits and mixes of Mello Hippo and The Witchfinder, last year's two calendar tracks, and their Oasis and Beatles covers are also not present.

edit: they're staying offline. *shrug*

Nice that's great news (not about the vanishing albums, them finally embracing Bandcamp). I wonder if this will replace fsoldigital (or at least, becomes the host of that sites content)

Apparently both will continue running. I suppose they'll be able to see over time which is more popular and if it's worth continuing to host the FSOLDigital site. Time will tell.

good move, always hoped they would appear on bandcamp :)

erm... the fsol site seems to be a bit... minimalistic *cough* in contrast to the AA site?

FSOL Bandcamp is now up.
https://fsol.bandcamp.com/


It has the bulk of the FSOLDigital era material up. At time of writing, the following are missing:
FSOL - A Gigantic Globular Burst of Anti-Static
FSOL - Archives 1-3 (Enhanced Versions)
Part-Sub-Merged - Four Forests
Polemical - Hand Made Devices
Heads of Agreement - The San Monta Tapes
Humanoid - Your Body Sub-Atomic
The Pulse EPs
Six Oscillators in Remittance - Cloudscraper
The Jazz Mags - An Open Window
EMS : Piano - One
Suburban Domestic - Stillness
Sand Sound Folly - Salient Moons 1973
Glass Girl - What's it All About
Synthi A - Ignition of the Sun (CD Version)
FSOL - Artworks EP
FSOL - Ramblings EPs 1-3
FSOL - The S:X One Live Improvisations
FSOLDigital Mix
The Fears and Fantasies of the Unconscious Mind
Calendar Albums 2017-2020
All the Pod Room stuff
Other artist releases (Neotropic, Seafar, Herd, myself, etc.)


It does, however, have the first ever digital release of Life in Moments, and limited copies of the A Controlled Vista 12" picture disc.

Some lovely person here sent me their copy of 'The Most Important Moments in a Life' a while ago so never got/heard the accompanying album, so picked that up along with some other stuff I didn't realise I never purchased first time around (Humanoid - Remixes EP, Intelligent Communication - Drive & Smart Systems - The Tingler)

(EDIT: And the best thing about them being on Bandcamp is the filenames and id3 tags are automatically generated from the artist, album, and track name so I don't have to spend a little while re-tagging everything with the pseudo-random fsoldigital labelling :D )
